One would have thought that those people who host sports shows would have some commonsense. They do NOT! Understandingly, LEBRON must carry MOST of the burden, when the Lakers have suffered such calamities as the injury of Anthony Davis and the ABSENCE of Dennis Schroder. However NO megastar can singularly WIN a game. That they have chosen to badger LBJ with horseshit criticism and abstain from a serious measure of critique for the REST of the Lakers' Team is something I can only describe as "jackass-glorification", with the hope of finding an audience who either hate LBJ or a simply jealous of him. It is no wonder that one's HAIR is is deserting him and the other's EYES are about to fly out from the socket. Lebron James e` il figlio di Dio. Io sono un tifoso fedele di Lebron james...oggi e per sempre!

So... When LeBron turned 36 and AD and Schroeder was still Healthy people said Age doesn't matter for LeBron cuz they were winning.. but now that they're losing y'all are now saying LeBron's old he 36 he can't carry a team no more... So what is it really?

Max is right, and let me put a little simpler and harsher for you people who are saying everybody has injuries and other teams are dealing with this Shroder and Davis is their second and third leading scorers and the second and third best players, AND the best 2 players on defense what other teams are dealing with this!!?? I know you Lakers haters are ready to pounce on us while we're struggling, but that's just the truth Kcp, caruso, matthews, gasol, tht, morris,and kuzma have not shown that they can be confidently depended on enough to help carry the team while AD and schroder is out, AND thats not an excuse it's a fact

A pass? For your guys’ “GOAT”? Your guys’ MVP The self proclaimed “king”?! NO! Missing important free-throws at the end of games etc.?! This guys is supposed to be the MVP? He’s not even the MVP on this Lakers squad. He’s the biggest Chokester who doesn’t get recognized as one. Look at his win percentage without AD. Look at his first season with the Lakers. Steph Curry is carrying a WORSE Warriors team better than LeChoke is this Lakers team yet Steph is not even in the MVP convo This is starting to get ridiculous If you’re the GOAT, the best on earth, the KING, you don’t get a pass for a losing streak like this.

Max’s point doesn’t make sense if your defending champions there’s no excuses because it’s not a one man game , as much as AD and Bron are the driving force still doesn’t give them an excuse , if anything they (the team) should be stepping up to show it’s not just a 2 man team

I don't blame ESPN for speaking about Lebron every day, because they love talking about basketball and Lebron James is the basketball ! What about Lakers, first of all there is no doubt they will go to playoffs, if in the playoffs they are healthy they are going to repeat for sure. Secondly Lakers are planning to add some new players as well and until playoffs we can easily see way different roster than now. Thirdly this goes again again and again -> they speak about regular season, blaming Lebron etc, but when it comes to playoffs that guy winning nearly everything.

AD injury came right in time as the media from jump started creating the narrative for Lefraud for mvp and and were ready to take it up a notch even more though Embiid, Jokic and others are dominating early, but the media keeps talking about him. Now with AD injured Lefraud can't hide behind AD anymore for awhile and it's a wonderful day every day watching Lefraud expose himself for what he really is not and that is an MVP. AD is the mvp of the Lakers and its all clear right where all can see.. Stand by and watch Lefrauds place on the mvp ladder continue to fall bcoz nobody when all are watching can defend him for mvp ..😂

Lakers offense last season was run by Rajon Rondo and the roll players with the accommodation of Lebron James and Anthony Davis when the roll players were struggling. Also, Lakers had the defensive minded players and veteran ship last season with Javelle McGee, Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo and Danny Green but not this season. Theirs no defense anywhere on this team. Lakers have a lot of players that they can hopefully work a trade with two or three teams before going into the playoffs if they plan on winning the championship this season.

Lebron did it to himself 🤷🏽🤷🏽🤷🏽 since he wants to run the lebron system that’s what happens. They don’t run an equal opportunity offense so no one knows what to do when he’s not on the court. Anthony Davis was and is the biggest reason LA was/is successful
